The Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC) was formed in 2001 to address the national poultry research needs of the four national feather boards (Chicken Farmers of Canada, Canadian Hatching Egg Producers, Egg Farmers of Canada, Turkey Farmers of Canada) and the Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors Council. CPRC serves these member groups through the coordination and implementation of its Poultry Science Cluster – securing matching and additional cluster funding to deliver an efficient poultry research program in Canada based on national research priorities.
